Skyforge is making the jump to a non-wipable open beta today (aka a soft launch), although the team dealt with a server issue earlier that caused a delay. Fortunately, it looks as though everything’s been handled on the NA side, although the EU server is still down at the time of this writing. “The Skyforge open beta is officially underway. Download the game and begin forging your path as an immortal!” the official Twitter account said.
Founders have already been in the game for a week now, and Skyforge is offering a free mechanic costume to anyone who logs in by July 23rd as incentive to try it out.
Skyforge also announced that it is now selling a collector’s edition and a starter edition to replace the now-expired sale of founder’s packs. The $60 Wardens of the Wasteland edition comes bundled with the Knight and Alchemist classes.
Here’s a peek at our coverage of the game in its lead-up to launch:
